SLC Middle School Minutes – Jan 30-25v2b7r

STUDENT LEADERSHIP COUNCIL of SD43

 

General Information  
Date Tuesday, January 30, 2018
Chairs of SLC Sara Parker and Kelsey Stewart
Location and Room Gymnasium, Winslow Centre
Guests (incl. Trustees) Trustee Denison, Trustee Hobson, Trustee Cahoon

 

 

MEETING ITEMS AND MINUTES

 

INTRODUCTION
1:10 – 1:13 Welcome back!

Acknowledgement of guests and territories.

 

DR. BUHR PRESENTATION: MINDSET II
1:13 – 2:20 –       Go over last meeting’s presentation: fixed vs. growth mindset

–       Four parts: thoughts, emotions, behaviors, physiology.

–       Where does our brain go when we have a test? We have negative thoughts and we are not happy and very anxious.

–       What situations effect our mindset?

–       Mindset effects everything we do and think: thoughts, emotions, body reactions, and behaviors are all connected

–        Avoid thinking traps, do NOT believe everything you think. Thoughts are not always facts.

–        Self thought is very important! What you say to yourself can change how you act and how you feel.

–       Challenge unhelpful thinking. Type, write talk out problems.

–       Rule of thumb: Don’t say something negative to yourself that you wouldn’t say to someone else.

–       Visualize yourself being able to do it, you will be more likely being able to do it.

–       Mindfullness: Its being in the moment, being here and now instead of somewhere else.

–       Try to take as long as possible to eat a chocolate – practice mindfulness and being present – sort of “recharge”

–       Gratitude: think about what you’re thankful for.

–       MINDSHIFT APP: All the applications you need to change your mindset and handle stress. Available on the App Store and Google Play

CONCLUSION
2:20 – 2:35 –       Homework assignment: go back to your school and talk to your leadership class and figure out the best way to introduce or expand mindset at your school. Come back in February ready to do all the planning for this with help from SLC. Put together all resources and information necessary for February 27.

–       SLC Retreat: Choose to Lead Conference (April 25) and SLC Retreat at Loon Lake (May 3-4). Total cost if $30, cheque payable to Scott Creek Middle School. If you have any questions, email maskew@sd43.bc.ca

  1. My growth mindset voice answers… 
  1. Put the “growth” mindset in action 
  1. Take on/embrace challenges 
  1. Learn from setbacks 
  1. Use feedback to improve 

MINDSET ACTIVITY 

1350-1425 

Mindset Worksheet for brainstorming “growth mindset answers” (done in home groups) 

The goal is to come up with responses in your mind to defeat the motive that the fixed mindset gives through a persisting and willing work encouragement, without comparing how “well” you can look but being inspired by others success as well. 

-I can learn from this. 

-There’s always another way. 

-I’m not amazing at this, but I put in my best effort and that’s what matters! 

POWER OF YET: 

-There is a difference between not knowing and not knowing yet.
